"Americas 50 Hottest Cities"

10 posts in this topic

The Carolinas are represented by Charlotte, Raleigh (of course, LOL). Columbia, Greenville, Charleston, & Sumter. Any comments, or surprises?

I was surprised to see Oklahoma City on there but then again I know very little about the area?

Techically SC had 7 cities and 5 metros/4CSAs ;)

I understand OKC to be a happnin place. Its one of those cities that isn't well covered anywhere.

Don't forget about Rock Hill so that's 8 cities. It's still in SC now although I'm sure in about 10 years it will be annexed into Charlottes city limits.

I'm a little confused. this list is a list of hottest cities. Hot in terms of what? Buisness or population or cool place to be?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Hot in terms of "executives of companies actively looking for a place to expand or relocate their facilities within the next one to three years". So probablly more business related.

This has surprised me that Lexington, Kentucky made it on to this list. I live in Lexington and attend the University of Kentucky where I have had an Urban Planning class. Lexington is a thriving city however, it is very crowded and has horrible traffic for a relativley small city. The population is around 300,000 with metro pop. around 500,000. Although new businesses aren't flocking here there have been some in recent years. Planning has become more close watched out of necessity due to the crowded roads and massive suburban sparwl. I don't know if I'd say Lexington is "HOT" but I'm glad it made it on the list. :D

I'm a little disappointed that Charleston didn't make it higher on the list, but maybe that will happen a few years from now. I am impressed that SC cities fared so well. :thumbsup:

Im a little surprised but at the same time im not.I thought Miami could do better but I also know that Miami is a limited city.Miami is mostly based on banking,food,exports,imports,tourists,etc...

The "sunbelt" seems to be very well represented on this list, as expected. I am glad to see Pittsburgh in there as well, and ranked higher than Chicago!
